My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I'm Ian. I just graduated from UMass with a double major in English and German. These days, I'm preparing to leave to teach English in Thailand in October.
I think music, cooking, and languages are tons of fun. I play bass and ukulele pretty well and have been known to pick out a tune on a guitar or banjo from time to time too. I can speak German pretty well and have been studying Vietnamese to talk with some people I used to work with. I'll cook just about anything, and usually it will come out somewhere between okay and amazing.
I live for new experiences and try to say yes as much as I can.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Hanging out in the Valley while I try to figure out what's next. In the meantime, I can usually be found reading, cooking, playing some music, and taking yoga classes in Bikram's torture chamber.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Cooking and jamming out on the bass and ukulele are the first things that come to mind. I've been known to brew a pretty nice beer every once in a while. And according to one of my yoga teachers, my triangle pose is "kick-ass"
The first things people usually notice about me

I get a lot of compliments on my eyes. People seem to like it when I smile too, so I make sure to do a whole lot of that.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Have you ever read Cosmopolis by Don DeLillo? I like books like that. I also go for nonfiction books about people finding their way through the world, like A Time of Gifts, by Patrick Leigh Fermor.

I very rarely watch movies. A few favorites that come to mind are The Jerk and Step Brothers. I just watched Moonrise Kingdom last week, and thought it was just wonderful.

Sometimes I feel like I watch too much TV. Other times I feel like I don't watch enough TV. Either way, I don't think I'm watching the right shows. Unless it's right to watch copious amounts of South Park and Scrubs reruns.

A short list of artists I've been especially enjoying lately would have to include Blind Pilot, A Great Big Pile of Leaves, Polica, Real Estate, Woods, The Speed of Sound in Seawater, Hostage Calm and Delicate Steve. I have a real soft spot for Ke$ha too, and don’t feel bad about it at all.

There isn’t much food I can’t get into. When I go out, I think Vietnamese and Thai food are the way to go. When I cook for myself, I read a bunch of recipes for certain dishes then try to figure it out and make it my own. I’m usually pretty successful. And you should probably know that I make a mean cranberry sauce.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Tasty food, live music, interesting books, good beer, fun people, and lots of new experiences.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
I try to see myself more as a doer than a thinker. Then I just end up spending tons of time thinking about what to do. It's a vicious cycle.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Out and about, usually in Amherst or Northampton. Sometimes taking it easy with some friends, other times seeing some bands somewhere or just out for a drink. I try to keep things interesting.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I used to long to go to Russia because I thought Saint Basil's Cathedral looked like it was made of ice cream. Now I don't really think that, but I'd still like to make it to Moscow someday.
